Actual inside look at a retired military submarine. Using headphones for an audio tour, we went from one end of the to the other. Explanations and applications of what you were seeing was very informative!

The museum and the Bowfin were an incredible step back into the lives of the crews that served in the silent service. The audio tour made this an enjoyable experience for my wife and I.

This is an actual wartime submarine that you get to walk through and it is as amazing as it sounds. Definitely recommend the headphones tour and water to drink since it gets a little warm down there. The rest of the Pearl Harbor area you learn the history, but this actually makes you picture it so vividly. As an FYI, there are some tough doorways to negotiate and space is tight, so I can see how getting through the sub could be a challenge for some.

Awesome tour. The audio recording is a must to get all the info. Wear comfortable shoes and avoid dresses. I can also get pretty warm in the sub so make sure you have water if you need it.

My two younger sons loved this. Wear the headphones, they are a must and go at your own rate. It gives you the history of the sub and real life stories. Even my 6 y/o found it interesting (my 4 y/o not so much but he liked looking and going into the sub). I would do this tour again. It is a nice one you can do at your own pace and not many people on board or around when we went.
